Turmoil and Tranquillity

Simon de Vlieger - The Beach at ScheveningenThe latest exhibition at the National Maritime Museum in London is Turmoil and Tranquillity, which opened yesterday in the Queen's House and continues until 11 January 2009, admission free. Seascapes by masters Jan Porcellis, Simon de Vlieger, Ludolf Backhuysen and Jacob van Ruisdael, all from the museum's huge collection of 16th- and 17th-century Dutch and Flemish maritime paintings, will be on display, ranging from tranquil coastal scenes to dramatic battles at sea. This is a must for any budding sea scout over the summer holidays.
